Koepka ties US Open record in capturing first major victory

19 June 2017

With a final round, 5-under-par 67, Koepka finished at 16 under and four shots clear of 54-hole leader Brian Harman and Hideki Matsuyama. I was excited for today.

"I felt really comfortable yesterday". I think that was the best shot he hit all day. "So it's pretty simple, I just didn't get it in the hole fast enough".

But it made me feel a lot better seeing Brooks shoot 5-under.

"Yeah, no doubt. I thought it was a fantastic round of golf, given what we were dealing with to start the day", the fifth-ranked player in the world said.

Q. Does this sting at all for you?

It looked as if it was going to be a nail-biting back nine, but after making a great save on 13, he birdied the next three holes to win by four shots in a runaway.

Qatar won't cut gas to UAE, Qatar Petroleum CEO says
The minister reiterated Saudi Arabia's commitment to fighting and defeating Daesh in Syria and throughout the world. These allegations have been vehemently denied by Qatar officials, terming them "baseless" and "unjustified".

"What I've done this week is wonderful". And by the middle of the back nine, only one player remained standing.

Stricker says he'll keep playing majors as long as he can get in them. Justin Thomas was hoping to relive it. Here's the rest of the purse breakdown for the 66 pros who made the cut.

Asked about avoiding sectional qualifying next year, Schauffele said, "That's another thing I didn't know". But, yeah, it was hard to. Between conversations I've had with Claude [Harmon III] and Pete Cowan sat me down, I think, on Tuesday, and kind of had a conversation with me just kind of staying patient, not trying to win. It's probably unlike anything I've ever played in the states.

Q. Something to build on or give you some more confidence going forward? One more good shot. "The greens are flawless - some of the best greens I've ever putted on". And then 4, my ball was three inches from the hole, and it completely stopped and rolled back four and a half feet. It lets you be aggressive, you can get on runs where you can make birdies. "To be honest, I'm not a big golf nerd".

"Yeah, 12 under, I'd have about a 10-shot leads in most Opens", Harman said after posting 67-70-67 the first three rounds.

JUSTIN THOMAS: Yeah, I like it. I liked it before I came here. If the wind was up like this all week, your winning score is much higher than it would have been.

Mali security minister: 4 jihadis killed in resort attack
AQIM claimed the assault, saying the gunmen were from the Al-Murabitoun group of Algerian extremist Mokhtar Belmokhtar. The force has been a constant target for attacks by armed fighters, and many peacekeepers have lost their lives.

And he succeeded as US Open champion his good friend Dustin Johnson, who missed the cut at Erin Hills but gave him a pep talk on the phone after Saturday's third round. "Maybe narrow the fairways a bit, and I'd like to see the fescue a little bit thinner, so it's not a full-shot penalty for hitting in there".

The soft, forgiving conditions created opportunity for major movement up the leaderboard for those players willing to take it.

One night in Scotland, he called his agent and wanted to come home, even though he was leading the tournament. That's no longer the case, and the experience he gained at Erin Hills should help him should he once again be in contention for a major championship. I think it's a fair course. I hit some bad drives on 1 and 2, but made some pars, made a great birdie on 3, and then just I kind of thought if I parred, kept parring, I was going to have a really good chance.

"You have to measure success in different ways, not just by winning, just because that doesn't happen a whole lot". He's a good buddy of mine. He'd been knocking on the door for a while. They're very much a similar player, where nothing seems to bother them.

One of the University of Texas junior's goals is to play in the Walker Cup on September 9-10 at Los Angeles Country Club. It's insane to think that this is only his second win. "And the more patient that I can become, the more times I'll put myself in this situation".
